What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

Many of us love wearing dresses when we’re attending weddings but if the wedding is in the middle of winter and you have to endure the cold, it can bring the challenge of how to look stylish and remain warm. However, winter wedding dressing doesn’t have to be a daunting task.

When picking your outfit, the first thing you need to consider is the style of wedding. Are you attending a formal church wedding, a beach wedding or an evening wedding? If you’re attending a church wedding, dressing needs to be formal. That means shoulders have to be covered and a hat is required whilst evening weddings usually follow a black-tie dress code.  

When attending weddings, we often think we have to follow a traditional set of dressing rules but that isn’t the case. Dresses are not your only option. Nowadays, it is considered more acceptable to experiment with different styles, colours and shapes.

Jumpsuits and luxe tailoring are great options for weddings. If you are not keen on dresses but would like a similar look, then skirts are another great option. There are lots of styles in the shops including sequins, 50s style, patterns and prints.

To pull your look together, a stylish blazer in velvet, a luxe tuxedo or other patterned design will work wonders.  The great thing about being adventurous with your wedding outfit is that after the wedding is over, you can wear these outfits to other parties and events.

The best way to elevate your wedding look is by accessorising. Choose fashion-forward accessories to downplay the more traditional looks. When picking shoes to go with your outfit, it’s important to think practical as well as beauty. You will be on your feet all day and dancing the night away so stilettos may not be the best option especially if you have to take wedding pictures on grass. Opt instead for block heels in luxe designs or embellished flats.
